Hi Thomas,

all versions of Seaside 2 going back to 2002 should work, more
precisely all versions that are started using "WAKom startOn:

There seems to be a problem with your image, very likely the server
cannot be started by our start-up script. The following problems are
known to be trouble causers:

- The Kom-Server and/or Seaside is not properly installed. Does your
application work, if you test your image locally?

- There is an error in the start-up sequence of your image, causing a
debugger to pop up and to block the remaining start-up tasks (the
server is usually started last). Have you checked SqueakDebug.log on
the server?

No, Pier doesn't work with older versions of Seaside, moreover several
people are successfully running Pier on seasidehosting.st so there
should be another solution.

If the above problem persist please ask again, and I will check on the server.
